Sticking it out


My brother asked me to take a few pictures of him the other day and while I was playing with lighting, he started swinging the golf club around. Interestingly, he sticks his tongue out the same way he and my other brothers do when they are playing basketball. Wondering why most men seem to do this got me researching. Apparently, it is very scientific. The tongue is a very strong muscle and for the brain to concentrate on a difficult task more easily, it subconsciously stops the tongue from moving.


  1. Well, I know from experience that sticking your tongue between your teeth helps with difficult tasks, such as buckling a child's car seat.

  2. Nice portrait. It's not just men - girls do it too - Soccer!
